Punk hairstyles have endured many revivals and reinventions since their initial popularity in the 1970’s. Back then bands like The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, The Runaways, and The New York Dolls ruled the scene. Hairstyles took a detour from the soft, bouncy, golden feathered looks of Disco. The punk hairstyle was about edgy spiked to defy gravity blue-black raw works of art that laughed in your parents face. Since then, punk styles have come and gone, but the underlying edge and attitude of personal acceptance and confidence isn’t going anywhere. Styling Punk is much easier than you might think. It is more of an attitude than buying the right label. Today we have so many ways to “Punk Out” our tresses.
